Great pairings of ingredients!

Had a business dinner....pairing of ingredients was very unique and very tasteful! Bartender made some creative drinks that really pleased my colleagues, as he listened to their requests. Will visit again!

Park Kitchen is a great place for a special dinner. Try the chef's tasting menu to get a taste of many of the special dishes. Servings were more than adequate for this 5 course meal. Try to wine pairing for some interesting wine choices. The staff is attentive and personable. We had a wonderful anniversary celebration.

What made this dining experience so special was the passion of the personnel that served, prepared food and bartended this lovely establishment. The food was so fresh and the ingredients were so precisely delicious, with every bite, my friend and I looked at each other with smiles the entire time. The bartender, Curtis, was extremely knowledgeable about liquors and wines... More

This was a great dinner! Our second time there and now our must-go-to place when we are visiting Portland. The salt cod fritters are a must-have - they now serve them with a Asian inspired sauce and bonita flakes (previously it was with malt vinegar). The chickpea fries are wonderful and now that it is fall they are served with... More

Dined here on Wednesday evening, the restaurant was nearly empty. We had a reservation and had to wait to be seated in the bar, by the main entrance. Drafty and cold, we were off to a poor start. The menu, when it finally arrived, was extremely limited. We were not in the mood to leave, so the three of us... More

Chickpea fries, cod fritters, frikeh with cucumbers, ground cherries and feta and Oregon albacore...oh my! Partner this with outstanding service in both the bar and dining room, a good wine list and a cozy downtown setting and you have a winner. Loved Park Kitchen.

The night we visited there were only a few parties there, so we virtually had the undivided attention of the entire staff. As a consequence, we went for the chef's 8 course sampling menu, something we had never done before. It was amazing. Each course was wonderful and so very different from one another. We also had a carafe of... More

Appetizers were very good. Waxbean salad with crispy onions and plums was fantastic. Cod fritters also a great combo with Red Ale. Pasta pork ragu was outstanding. Double chocolate torte was awesome. Main courses had good flavored, sort of a Greek theme tonight, but the steak and lamb weren't the best cuts. I'm a fan of the Park Kitchen, but... More

My wife and I had dinner here, and tried items from their small plates and large plates. The food was very well composed, and we really enjoyed the variety and taste of the small plates. For the large plates, I had the pork roast, which was served with pickled watermelon, and was wonderful. It was tender and very flavorful. My... More

Wines were poured and not explained, refills were offered but staff kept removing glasses, speeches difficult to hear!
